2011 - Awarded seniority at deviantART.com
Every quarter a few members are selected to be seniors by the Director of Community Operations. You are not told why, but a member can gain seniority because of his/hers community spirit or artistic endeavours. Simply put: an inspiration. There are 18 million members and a few thousands of them are seniors.

Organiser:      UKM Region – Ung Kultur Möts Väst / KulturUngdom

I was in charge of the opening ceremony, parade and workshops as well as directed and acted in the opening ceremony movie. I was also the “steward mum” which meant that I made sure that all the stewards were OK and that they got food and love. “Steward mum” was my own idea before the festival. I was also the one the stewards contacted if there was a problem and I made the schedule for the approximately 20 stewards who worked at the festival. It was one of the biggest UKM Region festivals in Sweden ever. 

Steward at UKD (Ungkulturdagarna)
Organiser:      Riksteatern
When:            16 March 2007 - 18 March 2007

UKM Arranger

I held in meetings at the editorial office, handed out assignments, made sure that articles were written and handed in on time and proofread. I also edited, in Publisher 2003, the 11 issues of LUT that came out as a paper magazine. 

Marketing manager
Organiser:      UKM – Ung Kultur Möts Lidköping / Nätverket
When:            2004 - 2005
We advertised at the local square market two Saturdays in a row by handing out flyers and having a sofa, a TV and a sign with the slogan “Don’t do like us, go to UKM”. Five stewards worked for me. I saved 70% of my budget by not going through the regular channels for advertising so that money was used for other necessities for the festival. Both children and pensioners came to the youth festival.
